It's time to stop nesting and start birthing

I've only had one baby, and let me tell you, it was a freaking painful experience. For reasons that are too complicated to go into, I ended up in a great deal of pain but was not allowed any drugs. At one point, the nurse suggested I get into the shower and my husband spray my belly with the shower massager.

This did not help one little bit.

I did start banging my head on the tiled wall, and that helped a little.

Anyway, last summer I started working on a new book when I had a break between other projects. Now I again have another break and want to move the book forward. But instead, I'm doing the book version of "nesting." I'm lovingly rearranging what I've already done.

But I need to start pushing. I need to produce something new. Even if I'm a little scared and it's a little painful.

Off to try to bring a new life into the world...
